Just finished the refurnishing of the basement in my church’s education wing. Nina’s put in a ton of hours on it, too, and she gave it all these way cool finishing touches.
We were going for a really simple living-room feel, and I think it turned out way cozy. There’s a large main room with matching ping pong and foosball tables, a kitchenette, and some decent couches around a fireplace and TV cart. On that note, it’s got really sweet surround sound, with 5 strategically mounted satellite speakers and a subwoofer. Also, we were able to light the room sufficiently without having to use the glaring fluorescents overhead. Yeah, that office/cubicle feel is no good… The one finishing touch that I can’t wait for is some simple candle sconces and whatnot, but that involves some red tape.
There are two classrooms off to the side. One has a really earthy theme to it, and the other is supposed to feel kinda coastal. The earthy room has an awesome orange accent wall, and the coastal room has a light blue wall that didn’t turn out as cool as I had hoped, but they both work well enough.
